Cultural diversity – fostering a sense of community in schools
In the summer of 2021 Northing and Tekstallianse in collaboration with various local actors arranged the East Asian Culture Week for 40 children from 16 different schools in Bergen at the Møhlenpris Oppveksttun. The project was inspired by the international campaign Stop Asian Hate, and the goal was to build knowledge, understanding and love for the East Asian culture as part of a positive integration project.
As a basis for this project, we asked “How can the school contribute positively to spreading knowledge of and respect for different cultures and people, and what role can the literary and cultural sphere play in achieving this”?
With Ben Yu (Northing), Anna Svingen-Austestad (Associate professor in art pedagogy at KMD), Eduardo Andersen (City council for culture, volunteering and inclusion in Bergen municipality) moderator Leïla Rezzouk (Papillon).
The event will be in Norwegian.
